2011 Super Bowl Final Score: Aaron Rodgers Leads Packers To Fourth Super Bowl Victory

The Green Bay have won their fourth Super Bowl following their 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. The Steelers threatened to overtake the Packers at several points during the final half of play, even outscoring the Packers in the final 30 minutes.

The Packers led 21-10 at halftime on the strength of two Aaron Rodgers touchdown passes and an interception return by Nick Collins. Rodgers threw 29-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson for the first score of the game in the first quarter and then a 21-yard touchdown reception to Greg Jennings in the second quarter.

The Steelers were able to put 10 points up on the board by way of a Shaun Suisham 33-yard field goal and an 8-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Hines Ward.

The offenses started to open up in the second half. After the Packers punted on the opening drive of the second half, the Steelers went 50 yards on five plays to see Rashard Mendenhall score an eight-yard touchdown. Green Bay extended its lead to 28-17 following another Greg Jennings touchdown reception, but the Steelers answered back with a Mike Wallace 25-yard touchdown reception. The two-point conversion was successful, bringing the score to 28-25.

At 2:07 left in the game, Mason Crosby added a 23-yard field goal to put the Pack up, 31-25. The Steelers were unable to do anything on their last drive, turning the ball over after an incomplete pass on fourth down.
